Many organizations are struggling to manage the data explosion in an era of tight IT spending. Traditional approaches to enterprise storage such as SAN and NAS can be costly, especially for data that needs to be retained but is seldom accessed, while tape-based storage increasingly does not meet enterprise requirements in an 'on-demand' era. However, object-based storage systems are emerging as a new category in enterprise storage, allowing organizations to store vast quantities of data 'online,' and at a price point that won't break the bank. This webinar will illustrate object storage benefits via specific use cases.
"In my role running 451 Research Group's storage and information management practice, I hear from many enterprises just how difficult it is to tame the growing data explosion," said Simon Robinson, Vice President, 451 Research Group. "Object storage offers a scalable, easy to implement, affordable solution, and I look forward to sharing details on this growing market solution in our webinar."
